Elegant and intentionally rising above ideas of fashion, H_O is a collection of refined furniture of exclusive taste which Claudio Silvestrin designed in response to the need for a prestigious and tastefully luxurious Home Office. The collection consists of a desk with drawers, available in two different sizes; a pc table; a console table with a thick top; a cupboard; and three tables of different sizes, two circular and one oval, to meet the different needs of social encounters and work. The bookcase, which is modular, is based on a combination of three base elements – drawer, column and shelf – that can be used in different configurations.
The table top is a sandwich in poplar plywood with an MDF exterior and metal reinforcements. The surfaces of the tables, desks, cabinet, console table and bookcase are in dove grey or coffee-coloured leather. The supporting columns of the desks and tables are in Valcamonica Porphyry, in chestnut-purple, or in White Porphyry, with white-beige tints. The wood of the shelves and frames come in ash-tinted oak for the light-coloured leather or stone combinations, or in Louro Preto for the darker versions in the collection. The entire collection is upholstered in Tortorà or Caffè-colours hide.
In the ‘Square’ versions, the basic upholstery is finished with a 16x16 cm square ‘tone-on-tone’ design. The central part of the Oval Meeting Table top is pre-prepared with the possibility of opening up 4 containers to hold electrical installations.
